Career Linesmen have relied on their communications equipment through thick and thin. The average age of utility workers in the US is 47 years old, they are inclined to trust what they know, and learning complex new devices can introduce risk in emergency situations. Continue to leverage your existing equipment and networks, with familiar interfaces, while taking advantage of new Broadband networks with TAIT AXIOM Wearables.

Public Safety Agencies need to be transparent about spending public funding responsibly. In 2023, the Department of Justice (DOJ) will be able to utilize US$20.6 billion in discretionary funding for federal, state, and local law enforcement and crime prevention. Although this is a gigantic budget, the DOJ is inclined to spend this taxpayer funding appropriately. Existing radio hardware and networks have worked for decades, and will continue to work for years to come. Adding additional functionality to existing equipment, rather than purchasing entirely new systems is the fiscally responsible approach.

Enhanced Safety Features

Land mobile radio is tried and trusted for instant voice communications, but contemporary emergency response calls for greater situational awareness tools, like location data and video streaming. Broadband capability allows you to include new safety and productivity features into your existing tools:
